Though Ecotone’s classic twill structure references traditional wools with its deep colors and matte appearance, its recy-cled, biodegradable* polyester fiber technology and brilliant color range makes it strikingly contemporary. Joining Grid State, Ecotone is the second recycled, biodegradable polyester textile in the Luum line, providing more design solutions with its bleach-cleanable and multipurpose-use properties. Ecotone’s delustered, solution dyed fibers give its surface a wool-like quality while its color range - dually influenced by nature’s palette and the synthetic brights seen in active wear - demonstrates a range of options for use on screens, panels, wrapped walls and upholstery alike.
*Rate and extent of biodegradation into elements found in nature is 91% after 1,278 days under ASTM D5511 (Anaerobic Biodegrada-tion of Plastic Materials Under High Solids Anaerobic Digestion Conditions.) The test was done with the same component (PET) polyester and biocatalyst additive. No evidence of further degradation.
